They say that the gods were smiling the day they made Crete. Undeniably, the island is blessed with an alluring array of natural wonder. From its heaven-brushed peaks to rugged coasts, not to mention the beaches that made it famous, Crete is as diverse as Greece itself.
Often called the "cradle of European civilization," Crete was home to the Minoan civilization, Europe's oldest. Indeed, remnants of that history can be spotted all over the island. Day trips to explore its rich antiquarian Roman and Byzantine heritage are an excellent way to enjoy the sunshine, and when the sun sets, the party's just getting started.
Luxury Hotels in Crete That Add Class to Your Greek Vacation
Often, luxury hotels are sequestered in financial or government districts, and don't offer immediate access to a destination's most popular attractions. In Crete, luxury hotels never leave you far from where you want to be. Beaches are always just steps away, and upscale boardwalks packed with mouthwatering eateries, lively bars and fashionable nightclubs etch a neon glow in the enchanting mountainsides.
If you visit during the warm winter months, you will also be able to find excellent deals on luxury hotels. Thankfully, winters in Crete don't dampen the spirits of visitors. A golden warmth nurtures the island year-round, and you're sure to enjoy a memorable visit whether you hit the beaches during the height of summer or enjoy an off-season jaunt into the Cretan hilltops in search of a little history and adventure.
